Is there a simple way to export outlook messages with attachments from one lap top to another


Yes, there certainly is!
  1. Create a new folder on the desktop named Exported Mail (on the Finder, click File, and then click New Folder).
  2. Start Outlook Express.
  3. If necessary, resize the Outlook Express window so that the desktop is visible.
  4. Click the folder that contains the messages that you want to export (for example, the Inbox folder).
  5. Select the messages that you want to export by holding down the SHIFT key, and then clicking each message that you want to export.

    NOTE: To select all messages in a folder:
    1. Click one message.
    2. On the Edit menu, click Select All.
  6. Drag the selected messages from the Outlook Express window, and then put them in the Exported Messages folder that you created in step 1.
  7. Quit Outlook Express.
  8. Then transfer the folder that you created onto the other laptop!

How can u transfer incoming e- mails to my folder


- You can just manually drag and drop using your mouse pointer.

- Or you can make a set of rules so that incoming email should automatically transfer to that folder. Depending on what email client you are using rules can be set up according to your preferences. Refer to your users manual on how to set rules within your email client.

I want to save an email message to my memory stick but pc wont do it


Hi,

Please follow the following steps to backup your emails from Vista on the
memory stick and then download them on in Vista Mail of another PC:

Backup emails on memory stick
1) Browse to the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s Mail
folder
2) Open the local folders directory
3) Open the Inbox folder and Copy the contents of this folder
4) Close all windows and go to your desktop
5) Create a new folder and call it MSBackup
6) Paste all items into this new folder.
A manual backup of the message store has just taken place. You may now
simply copy the MSBackup Folder to your memory stick

Restore emails from memory stick to another PC

1) Copy the MSBackup Folder from the memory stick to desktop.
2) On the desktop, open the MSBackup Folder.
3) Copy all the items in the MSBackup folder and close the window
4) Browse to the c:\users\<username>\local\windows mail\local folders
directory
5) Open the Inbox Folder
6) Paste all the items into this folder. Choose yes if prompted to
overwrite folders/files.
7) Open Windows Mail. You will notice all the email messages have returned.

Let me know if this works.
